I have photographed Jim Carrey many times. Each time was a revelation and joy. He comes in – super nice – but we don’t talk that much. My job is to build a stage for him to explode on. To be completely ready to capture everything. To know this Jim Carrey energy is going to be bright and fast and then it is going to be over. We shot the ad campaign for Bruce Almighty in about 30 minutes – both the domestic art which you have seen. AND the European poster of Carrey in a sea of clouds naked. On a shoot for the cover of Esquire, I asked Jim in the dressing room what his rubbery face was going to look like when he got old. With that, he picked up a random clothespin – and then another… Big ideas like being naked in the clouds – or a small idea of giving him a roll of green seamless paper that he ran through so many ideas – total improvisations – finally blowing his nose into the bright green paper and letting it fly.
